Well you’re going snowboarding for the first time and you have no idea what you should wear. Don’t worry about it, I have a couple of tips for you.
You probably think having 10 shirts on is the best idea because you’ll be warmer and safer. WRONG! Always dress in layers, 3 layers to be exact. Your inner layer should something that covers your whole body. This can vary from a long sleeve top to a thermal top. Look for synthetic material so it helps wick moisture away when you start sweating.
Your middle layer should be a quality synthetic fleece or wool if you like. The middle layer will keep you warm by not allowing air to escape or enter. Dress according to the temperature. On a cold day you might want to wear a single heavy thick layer but on a warmer day, you can get by with just a t-shirt.
This is the layer that will provide protection from the cold and wind. This is usually a water proof jacket and pants. You want this layer to be durable, waterproof, windproof and most importantly breathable. This will shield you from whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at you.
Sometimes you can get away with wearing basketball shorts but sometimes it may be too cold for that. If it is extremely cold you should look into wearing thermal underwear pants or Long Johns. Pajamas work too if you don’t want to spend more money. Try to avoid wearing more than one sock. A good thin pair of socks will keep your feet warm by keeping air circulation and wicking moisture. Wearing too many socks will create discomfort on your boots and cause sweating.
To finish up your setup, you should buy goggles to protect your eyes from the sun and wind, Gloves to keep your hands warm and dry, and a beanie to keep your head
